The service, food and ambiance at MY China was fantastic. The menu was varied and excellent for sharing with a group of friends. There were 6 of us and we shared dim sum, and several noodle dishes (wild boar noodles were the favorite!), and main dishes. Yum. Then the bill for 6 very full and satisfied diners was just $20 a piece. Incredible San Francisco value for a fantastic lunch. The waiter was very charming and helpful in helping us make selevtions. We'll be going back soon!

Thanksgiving weekend, family in from East Coast. Fun day in SF with great lunch at MY China!! Cocktails were spectacular and food artfully crafted and delicious. Garlic crab, succulent and tender. Dumplings, ribs and noodles all spectacular!

Enjoyed the meal very much - had spicy seafood dumplings in green dough wrap with a mild slightly sweet spicy sauce, so tasty we poured it over the rice. The hot and sour soup made our noses run😁And the Kobe beef medallions were succulent hot wok seared chunks of tender beef, medium rare on the inside, came with green and red bell peppers and onions. For dessert the giant sugar egg puffs (5 to an order) is a go-to, came with chocolate, vanilla cream and raspberry dipping sauces.

Really enjoyed our dinner here. Martin Yan was on site the night we went. It is Dungeness crab season- definitely try one of the 6 special crab preparations he developed; wonderful!!! Noodle dishes are great as is barbecue pork. Lots of great choices to try. Fair wine list.
Located in the Westfield SF Mall 'under the dome'. Can be very noisy as it seems to be always busy, but worth it. Good for groups.
Would return and recommend (part

As always, the service has not improved. It's a shame because I want to really like this restaurant, but I just can't. For me, what ruins the experience is the service and it is the same every time we come here, and we have come here a lot. The main waiter/waitress are usually good enough, although they are often not around when you want to order more cocktails or to bring the check. The people who bring out the food are the least trained and have no common sense. They are usually standing there waiting for you to make room on the table so they can place the food. This has happen every time. For the love of God, bring an additional server for this job, don't expect your customers to do this! The other issue is the dishes are not paced out, everything just comes out at once and then they are standing waiting for you to find the room to set down the dishes. I like restaurants where the service is seamless and our servers to be almost invisible, meaning they are there when we need something, but you don't notice them when they remove dishes or silverware or refill your water. That is the art of good service. By the time I'm done eating at M.Y. China, I'm usually quit on edge, and just want to get the hell out there! The food is overall above average, but many of the dishes just have same spices.

This visit was to celebrate my 60th birthday. This is one of our favorite places to enjoy an amazing meal, and they never, ever disappoint. Thank you to all of the staff and especially one of the awesome managers, Daniel. I hope I got the name right. I proposed to my new wife (10/14/16) at this location. Thanks again for the memories.

Looking for somewhere to try some authentic Chinese food whilst in San Francisco and we stumbled upon this place online. Despite being in a shopping centre, don't let that put you off! The food was delicious, the service was impeccable and the ambience was lovely. Thoroughly enjoyed our time spent here and would recommend anyone going to San Francisco to stop by.

Our Drinks at the bar were great as was our service both at the bar and in the dining room- the food however was disastrous! Our two entree's were more than a little disappointing! Chairman mao's chicken was like an adult version of chicken nuggets - wasn't even tossed with the seasoning or the vegetables (it was just dumped on top ) ! The Peking duck came out looking beautiful but was cold( hmmmm wonder how that happened ) so we sent it back - nothing like
Microwaved Peking Duck to "warm it up"! Do you think a manager came to our table to apologize- no/ of course not!! We don't want or need anything free- we just want it done right- isn't that what we pay for? Bty- this was on a Sunday night at 5:30pm - I'll tell you- they weren't busy by anyone's standards!! No reason not to get this right!!

We had a hard time finding the restaurant since we are not from the area. The food was excellent. Our server was very helpful. We shared our food and it was plenty for both of us. The jazmin tea was wonderful.

Pea shoots is the greens of choice at M.Y. China. Our server could have been more attentive to our order and not recommend a dish of pea shoots with garlic when my 2 dishes already came with pea shoots. We ordered the Abalone perched on top a pile of pea shoots and the Big Knife Noodles with Seafood that also has pea shoots in it. We ended up with pea shoots in all our dishes. Other than the pea shoots overload, the meal was fine.

Honestly, it seems like they've changed the food to appeal to tourists. Everything seemed sweetened. The Dan Dan noodles stood the test, but lettuce cups, beef and green beans seemed shadows of themselves. We've taken family and friends there for years but will switch to Mr. Jiu's for future "just one Chinese meal on this trip" dinners.

I've never had a worse experience at a place so highly ranked on Open table. It took 35 minutes to get the appetizer that was supposed to take "10 to 15." I never got the soup I ordered until I reminded them twice. My wife's entree arrived ten minutes before mine. They couldn't or wouldn't do anything about an extremely disruptive group of two couples sitting nearby. This place is great if you like sitting in the hallway of a shopping mall and if the food at PF Changs is a little too authentic for you. Otherwise stay as far away as you can. A truly awful experience.
